It's My Rez Day!

Today, May 23rd, marks my 8th Rez Day.  I had no idea I would even make it this far.  I am not even sure where I heard about Second Life in the first place, but I thought "Hey this looks interesting, let's give this a try"  I came with no set expectations and would ride the adventure and see where it takes me.  And what a ride it has been.  I have seen and experienced so much in SL over the years.  I have also seen many of my friends come and go.  It has been a roller coaster at times and I have thought most recently about leaving.  I am sure you have experienced the same.  All the connections I have made in SL have been quite "real"  Never let anyone tell you this is just a game.  I am not sure what my future SL holds, but let's continue to share the fun and enjoy it while it lasts.  I actually started this blog when I started my SL journey.  There is so much in the archives to reflect upon.  Thank you and much love to all of you.  Rocky

Meet the Lyons Family

You may or may not know that my Second Life partner (Hansel Dieter) disappeared... again.  MIA since the end of December and I have had no other means of contact.  All I can do is hope that he is ok.  I am not sure if he will ever return.

The past few months I have been spending time with an awesome group of friends and thanks to Derek, I now have a family I can be a part of.  I already had a great relationship with my nephew Zach Ryan and now I have 3 more nephews.  Grayson, Enrique, and Daniel.  Each one unique and special in their own way.  Love you guys and thanks for being a special part of my Second Life

PlantPets @ Rockridge Heights on SL Marketplace

 Ever since the recent introduction of Viewer Managed Marketplace (VMM), I wondered exactly how easy it would be and if I could take my in-world PlantPet store and move some of them there.

So after watching a few of Torley Linden's tutorials and reading all the documentation, I decided to give it a try.

It was really not that difficult to set up a store and get started.  Of course, my product is not that complicated with having  mesh and versions, etc.  The store was only up a few days and I already made my first online sale.  I have a few PlantPets listed and hope to add more as time goes on.  It's a great way to clear out inventory of old Gacha's as well.  Many people seem to have taken advantage of selling those as well.

Here is the link to the PlantPets @ Rockridge Heights store on the Marketplace.

Drax Files Radio Hour's 100th episode

I was fortunate to attend the in-world special of the Drax Radio Files Hour [with Jo Yardley] which was held on the Firestorm Project Amphitheater on December 23, 2015.    The panel included the folks from MadPea, Firestorm Project, and Oz andVir Linden from Linden Lab.  If you have never listened to this podcast before, then I encourage you to check out the website and tune in on Fridays.  A very informative podcast about all things #SecondLife and....what is going on in virtual worlds as well.

The Sky Is Not Falling...Yet

I think we can all agree that #ProjectSansar  is going to provide a totally different user experience with cutting edge technology that will surpass  what is currently used in #secondlife  .  No doubt about it.  We also can probably agree that in the early stages, not everyone will have the means to even run Sansar.  As it stands now, it is quite expensive to get on board as a user or creator unless you have the $ or the skills.  One of my G+ friends has claimed the "Niche Factor" as a stumbling block for the typical Second Life user to take advantage of Sansar.  The bottom line for me is to just enjoy your Second Life and don't worry about what will happen to SL when Sansar arrives.  We still got time.  If sooner than later, then we move on to something else like "First Life"?

Firestorm Regions

I recently took a trip to see the Firestorm Regions in Second Life.  If you do a search in the viewer or on the web at, you will discover that there are actually 5 regions.  This picture was taken at the Firestorm Support Region
The landscaping on all of the regions is very nice with lots of spots for photo opportunities.  The Spooky Nights Hunt is going on if you want to participate in it while you explore the regions.  You are looking for a skull.  I passed on the hints page because these skulls are all over the place and quite easy to find.  The hunt runs till November 30th.

Weekend Shopping

OK I admit it, I do enjoy shopping in Second Life and lots of times I really have to wonder why.  I always ask myself this question when I am spending time in my inventory.  I am usually in it before I log out for the night. I think the key to keeping your inventory tidy is to consider everything you acquired during your login and put the stuff in a proper folder,   Trash the notecards and LM that you really don't need and THEN logout.  My guess is that no one really wants to spend the time, but trust me, its worth the effort.

Sure I occasionally hit up TMD and MOM, but there are two weekend shopping events that I never miss.  Fifty Linden Fridays and Lazy Sunday. These offer things for the home, but you can still find the girl stuff in them.  If you like the things from WhatNext and Digs, then you can usually find them on the list.

If you really enjoy shopping and want to pre-shop online before you visit the store inworld, then I would encourage you to visit  This way you can do a quick preview before you go to the actual event or store.
